think of as the in voters, voters who voted for george w. bush during the 2000 and voted for obama in 2008, some high income voters who didn't like what obama was saying about the $250,000 expending the bush tax cuts. i found voters who are saying i think i might go for mitt romney this year after voting for obama four years ago. the reason i wanted to talk to hispanic voters is because what's interesting and happening in the polls in colorado is as mitt romney is gaining among independentents you see obama widening his lead on latino voters. this is on the votes in black month about limiting deportation for young people. i wanted to go see if that has sort of ignited enthusiasm on hispanic voters and i was surprised to see not at all. i found voters who voted for the first time in 2008, really exspite to be a part of history and has been absolutely deflated and unexcited about what obama has done. when you talk to hispanic voters in colorado immigration is not the first thing that comes up at least in my conversations, it was the economy. and on that, they're just as disappointed
tradition. john mccain did only give two years, which is fair to say. but george w. bush gave eight years of tax returns. john kerry gave 20. my god, i can't even believe he saved 20 years. president obama gave 12 years. jonathan, that's the point. i -- how do you graciously, if you're mitt romney, give in here? >> well, there's no gracious way to give in anymore, because he's had his back up against the wall for so long. but there still is the opportunity to give in, get it out there and move on for him. i mean, you know, those of us who have, you know, gone to kind of crisis communications 101 have taken those -- 101 course of crisis communications understand that you've got something that you don't think people are going to like, the best thing you can do is get it out there and get it over with. meanwhile, mitt romney, you notice, continues to dance around the subject and dance around the subject, giving us lots to talk about on cable tv, speculating what's in it, speculating what might be in it. it's fun for us. >> one night of aggressive hits on the low tax rate in 2009 or whatever
first ran. former president george w. bush released nine. but mr. obama's challenger, senator john mccain, released just two years and told us today that's good enough for romney, too. do you think it's creating a distraction, though, that the obama campaign... >> that's exactly what the obama campaign wants to do is create a distraction. anything to avoid the economy that's in the tank. >> reporter: even newt gingrich now backs romney on this issue. >> well, i thought that he owed it to the country to share more. he's agreed now to go to two full years of disclosure. at the time he hadn't done that. >> reporter: but he had this advice for the romney campaign. >> i think they've got to be tougher, more direct, and i think they will be. >> reporter: part of the challenge for romney here is that it was his own father, george romney, who set the standard for presidential candidates when he released 12 years of his tax returns, scott, when he was running back in 1968. >> pelley: nancy, thank you. in utah last night, an airline pilot suspected of murder made a desperate attempt to fly away
at running mates and teams, is it al gore and clinton, is it cheney and george w. bush? who in the past, is it george herbert walker bush and ronald reagan? what's your role model for what a good vice president should be. is it joe biden? >> i haven't really given that a lot of thought or studied the dynamic or synergies between the vice president and the president in years gone past. i would want to give that some thought and give you a more thoughtful answer but just off the cuff, i would say if you look at the relationship that ronald reagan had with george bush, h.w. bush, that seemed to be a healthy, dynamic and constructive relationship. i'm sure there are others. but just off the cuff, that would be one that would be worth further review and study. seems they had a good relationship and good partnership. >> people are talking about senator portman, one of your colleagues, because of ohio and the importance of ohio. clearly minnesota is not considered a swing state here. the last time it actually voted for a republican -- >> 1972 is the answer. it's the longest unbroken streak of
dispatched the campaign's chief counsel, top lawyer ben ginsburg, representing george w. bush in the florida recount in 2000. it's not the first time he's been dispatched to a convention by the romney folks, but we have noticed when his name comes up in the news reports, it's invariably in connection with efforts to wrangle ron paul supporters. wrangle ron paul supporters who are trying to take over the state and delegates for themselves. for whatever reason, this weekend, the romney campaign sent its top lawyer to the nebraska republican convention. when the two sides squared off in nebraska this weekend, what happened? the ron paul folks, very excited for their last chance to be the camel's libertarian nose wiggling its way the to the main stream republican tent, and the romney campaign dispatching their top staff to hold the tent firmly in place, to keep the camel out. what happened this weekend in nebraska? the camel got smoked, and that's a quote from the omaha world herald who described the ron paul revolution as failing to materialize this weekend in nebraska. quote, in the end, the p

the campaign called george w. bush un-american and it was wrong then and it's wrong now for governor sununu to suggest exactly the same thing about barack obama. this is the president of the united states, the leader of the free world, we request have a civilized discourse saying that obama is not american, is completely wrong. >> the vast majority of republicans are not of the ilk that would question the president's americanism or patriotism or anything along those lines, i believe he's a country loving patriotic american, i just think he happens to be wrong, i think his policies have failed. the vast majority of americans thinks that the country is going in the wrong direction. that's what it should be about, not about missteps and quotes that are taken out of context, it should be about those fundamental issues and where this country is going. >> those polls still show governor romney leading with the -- at least in your opinion he is not handling in the right way, but with that said, i want to play this new ad from the romney campaign featuring of all people hillary clinton, she's taken

called herself mildly pro-choice. but the potential george w. bush hangover and not wanting the job, she would be a surprise. the other bush brother jeb remains popular with republicans especially in swing state florida. he speaks spanish fluently and he is popular with latino leaders. there is also brother george. jeb bush has moderate views of accepting the trade of higher taxes for spending. that could hurt. and as a consistent presidential favorite, he could upstage romney. another potential surprise, marco rubio. they see him as a rock star. he could help with the latino vote and at 41 bring some youthful energy. with less than two years as senator, will he pass the heartbeat away test? he could bring unwanted attention to romney's religion and his brush with foreclosure and credit card debt. finally somebody who surprises, donald trump. very unlikely here. in trade which trades stocks has trump at one cent a share. all the rest, all penny stocks. at $2.50, tim pawlenty is a penny stock. >> let's go to rich gaylin and democratic strategist chuck roacha. good morning. >> hey, chris.

the country's focus on education, it seems like at one point, not long ago, even under george w. bush, we kind of could come together on the subject and say this has got to be a priority. but now it has become so partisan, i wonder as someone who is in a school setting in the hollywood vein but also is working on issues that affect students, what you make of that. >> well, it's kind of interesting that we look back to the george bush era when we could all get along. yeah, it's just so important. the santorum comment about everybody should have a college education, when a snob. it's almost as if we're dumbing ourselves down. a college education is a terrific opportunity for a child to bloom and grow. i know for me it awakened my natural curiosity for the first time in my life. it was a terrific experience. if a kid wants to go to school now it's really difficult. grants and scholarships are down, way, way down, and there are so many student loans out there that there's all this fine print and these people, kids and parents, go into these not knowing what they're saying and that's why this colle
